Mountainbiking Europe

Norway

Galdhøpiggen, Norway

Attacking the highest mountain i Norway, Galdhøpiggen 2469 m, in the summer 1996. We were starting in sun on a very hot day and ended up in a ski alpine area, where the swedish national ski team were execising. So far have been to Norway on MTB 2 times (1996 og 1997). Both times without no place to stay except for my VW Transporter.

Schierke and Clausthal Zellerfeld have been the base. Every time we have been competing “First to the very top of Brocken”…see down under….

brocken attack data mtb harz

The track very short: The start at Scharfenstein. GPS coordinate: N51 49.805, E10 36.135. Finish (mål) at the Brocken stone. The ascent starts in 635 meters and goes all the ways up to 1141 meters above sea, very old-fashioned East German concretes road. Therefore a ascent at over 500 verticals meters, which back down over a distance of 4,1 km, which about average of ascent of nearly 12.5% – which get Alpe d’Huez to imitate a cartoon. (8.5% sectional with a maximum of ascent of 12%). More parts of the Brocken road you will find ascents over 20% with a maximum of 28%.
